Paper Title:
Influence of Dwell Time on Creep-Fatigue Crack Growth Behavior of P92 Steel Weldment at High Temperature
  Abstract

In this study, the creep-fatigue crack growth behavior was investigated at 600°C under the maximum load with various dwell times. Test material was P92 steel (9%Cr-2%W) weldment. The creep-fatigue crack growth behavior of the HAZ(heat affected zone) and base metal was compared. The relationship between the crack growth behavior and dwell time was studied and it was characterized using ΔK and (Ct)avg parameters. The area fraction of micro-voids/cavities at the crack tip and fracture modes were examined and the relationship between crack growth rate and dwell time was investigated. The cycle dependant crack growth rate increased with the increase in dwell time. From the results of creep-fatigue test, the crack growth rate of the HAZ was found to be faster than that of base metal. As the dwell period increased, the intergranular fracture was observed along the crack growth path with the effect of creep during the dwell period.
